Leeds striker Mike Grella has signed a three-year contract at Elland Road.

The 22-year-old American has been rewarded with a long-term deal after an impressive pre-season campaign with the club. The USA Under-20 international first arrived at Leeds after a successful trial last January.

Grella said: "The dream when I came here was to sign a pro contract. It's good to know the club have instilled a bit of belief and confidence in me. I want to be part of the group and play as big a part as I possibly can in getting Leeds promoted."

He added: "The manager told me that he obviously rated me and that if I worked hard, Leeds would be the place for me to grow and become a better professional."
